Anyone here knows how do I go about sharpening a spring steel blade knife?
No difference from sharpening other steels... In fact it is easier to sharpen than modern steels like S30V, SG2 and VG10. These usually need ceramic or diamond sharpeners. Spring steel (usually 5160 steel) is very tough and can take a lot of abuse during chopping but it is not very hard. I've sharpened a Ranger RD in 5160 using normal sharpening stones you can buy from hardware stores (also known as Carborundum stone and India stone).
